    Thanks to swiss for trusting me with his bike and Matrix taking the video footage.
    The following squid footage is the fist time i've ridden a bike since my accident last year. As you can see, no more crutches or walking stick . . . and sad to say in this instance - super-squidding !! :eek:

    It felt so natural, and I can still use the rear brake using my heel.

    . . . faaark it felt so good getting back on the bike.

    Time for Tex to service the other bike now. Needs new tyres.

    Too bad i'm heading O/S ! . . bah, better squeeze in some rides with you guys before I go !

    I wonder what the Snowy Speed Demon members are upto ! :grin:

    Wouldn't be too hard to modify/ adapt a brake lever to be behind teh peg rather than on front.

    Regards, Andrew.

    So you don't use your rear brake, doesn't mean no one else has learnt how to.........
